Well now those rumors are hitting the STAR WARS universe again today. According to an article from wegotthiscovered.com , they are saying that the Johnson trilogy is done. He is what they reported:

“Disney didn’t specify which films would be arriving on the aforementioned dates and now, John Campea, who usually has reliable intel – though not always – is reporting that the three slots all belong to the upcoming trilogy from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Which means that none of them are for Rian Johnson’s trilogy. As such, he believes that The Last Jedi director is no longer working on his Star Wars movies.”

The Hate and Harassment

Whatever the outcome is most people would not be surprised if Rian Johnson walked away from STAR WARS. After being blamed for destroying STAR WARS with The Last Jedi, Johnson has taken a lot of verbal abuse and harassment over the years. But there are still some fans out there that want to see what Rian Johnson can do with his own story. So as of now we don’t know what Johnson’s future holds with STAR WARS. But with all these announcements maybe we will get our answers soon.
